Joy Global equipment is used in virtually every type of mining application world-wide. While we strongly support the coal industry, our expanding product line in underground hard rock mining machinery represents the next step in our expansion into the nickel, palladium, platinum, gold, and copper markets, among others.
The continued expansion of emerging market economies requires that we continually optimize our global manufacturing and distribution footprint worldwide. Therefore, we will continue to develop our China facilities to deliver customized full-systems solutions in a market that is rapidly consolidating and seeking to move lower on the global cost curve. Joy Global is committed to being able to rapidly customize locally for our customers' needs.
